January Jams Presents John Paul White With Sam Lewis Abingdon VA Jan 12

Abingdon Music Experience / January Jams Presents John Paul White With Sam Lewis Abingdon VA

For Fans of: Civil Wars, Sara Watkins, Andrew Combs, Gregory Alan Isakov with Special Guest: Sam Lewis Beulah. It’s a small, complicated word with a tangle of meanings.

Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar. He looks like nobody who is famous. Then he begins to sing, to caress the song “Break My Heart Sweetly,” and all that remains is to whisper, “Oh, my god.” In Colbert’s studio everybody stood, like they were in church. Big Bad Luv...
